Newcastle was struck down by an earthquake in December 1989, costing the lives of thirteen locals, and causing widespread damage to the city’s urban landscape. The 5.6 magnitude quake destroyed 35,000 homes and garnered a $4 billion damage bill. Charlestown escaped the carnage, however Newcastle wasn’t as lucky, with Hamilton being at the epicentre of the quake.

We're always making great things.
